The article below was written by a guest columnist, Michael Longsdon. While assisting his mother-in-law move into a smaller home he learned a great deal about the process of downsizing. I have shared some of these tips with clients looking to buy and sell. Now I have it all in one location. Whether you are a child assisting your parents with a move or you want to live in a smaller house you will find the information in the article relatable. Or, if you are like me, I was excited to click the link on decluttering. I will make it a weekend project this winter!
Buyers are always asking what they need to do before starting a home search. Michaela Lamb has the answers.
Westerly, RI Realtor-Michaela Lamb
South County's local real estate market is a strong seller's market. I've personally had listings go under contract within 24 hours. If you have had thoughts of selling, now is the perfect time.
According to Realtor.com, "Beyond the temperature of the market and your marketing efforts, the most likely factor when it comes to a lack of offers on a home is price." A good agent will be thorough and knowledgable about current comparable sold properties. Please keep an open mind about your Realtor's suggested list price.
Demand is up, buyers are everywhere, and it's not uncommon for a home to get multiple offers right away. Buyers are asking for less when it comes to contingencies and closing costs to keep their offers as competitive as possible.
Current real estate market reports show that this seller's market is going to continue. Again, if selling your home is in the near future you may be very happy with how quickly the process will work for you if your property is priced correctly.
